Talk:A Million Little Fibers

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search


Does one review from IGN, what used to be only a video game website, mean that the episode isn't "highly esteemed"? What makes this one person's opinion the deciding factor on the quality of this episode? Maybe if there were other documented reviews stating that the episode was poor you could make that claim. The reception section probably should just explain what the IGN review said and not attempt to review the episode itself, in my opinion. Give the reader the information and let them decide, especially if there is only one review of the episode from IGN. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:26, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

What makes any individual critic's review the "deciding factor"? Aggregate scores are the best, but just because the reviewer works for a "used to be" gaming website does not invalidate his criticism. That's an irrelevant point...and if it's really the only documented review you can find, that doesn't mean you should censor it and free-associate what you believe other critics will think. "Giving the reader the information and letting them decide", as you put it, is NOT what the reception area is for. (talk) 08:06, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

The Vagina - Asshole Dialogue?[edit]

I'm not in the position to have all the information, but is there some connection between Oprah and The Vagina Monologues, and could all this Minge/Gary business be some kind of a parody?--Bahati 11:43, 21 April 2006 (UTC)

The other day I saw a sketch on MADtv that had something to do with Oprah and The Vagina Monologues, but I can't remember exactly what happened. I'm not sure if there's a connection, but you have a good point there... Shivers 02:37, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

I might be inclined to believe that if it were just mingey and not gary. There isn't an "asshole monologues" after all. --Anarchy_Balsac

References to other South Park episodes[edit]

When Gary dies you can hear him/Oprah defecate. This is a reference to "Something Wall-Mart This Way Comes" and has become a semi-recurring joke in the series. Mac OS X 10:17, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

Of mice and men reference?[edit]

Is the relationship between mingy and gary really anything like george and lenny? Gary isn't particularly stupid, maybe naive, but not retarded like lenny, and I don't remember george taking hostages! Unless someone has a source to say that they meant it to be a direct comparison, I think whoever posted this was reading the book when they saw the episode and drew comparisons where there are none. I fail to see any link at all —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:05, 10 May 2008 (UTC)

Pop culture references[edit]

Could do with a little cleanup. Like the Gary Glitter bit. Shouldn't put on that he's in a prison, as that can change. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:21, 13 July 2008 (UTC)

Done and done. Next time be bold and clean it up yourself. Since nothing in that section cited a source it is perfectly fine to delete it all. Cheers. L0b0t (talk) 02:21, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

Claims of Parody are based on analysis and therefore WP:OR[edit]

Bytebear is returning material to the article using arguments that countermand each other: His first claim was that the parody was so obvious that it doesnt need a citation. [1] (To which I disagree - analysis of the content to declare that it is a parody falls under WP:OR) But, assuming he is correct, if the parody is so obvious, then linking to the book is in opposition to WP:OVERLINK - you dont link to obvious materials. If you want to link it to the book, you need a source that makes the connection. -- The Red Pen of Doom 00:42, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Reason # 1,000,001 why Wikipedia sucks[edit]

Not a single reference to James Frey and "A Million Little Pieces". Total traveshmockery. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:55, 9 September 2009 (UTC)

Yeah..the episode is somewhat difficult to understand even if you are familiar with the controversy over Frey's book. What proportion of the South Park audience is going to pick up on references to the publishing world, even if they're at the tabloid-scandal level?drone5 (talk) 09:02, 24 December 2009 (UTC)

James Frey[edit]

How can this article lack any references to James Frey??? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:26, 30 March 2012 (UTC)
